accountability office. no money for defense, nothing for education, food, safety, veterans, the whole shebang. it's basically in your own personal economy like spending every cent you earn on your mortgage and nothing else. no food,clothes, no car, you get the picture, right. the 20-year prediction is even more mind blowing. the big four is set to consume $1.21 for every $1 that you pay in in taxes, which brings us back to the cliff, the fiscal cliff, and how lawmakers can fix this very expensive problem. terry savage is the nationally syndicated financial columnist for the "chicago sun-times." terry, it's good of you to join us today. i think my first question is, with most households we think, spend less, try to earn more and we'll fix our problem. and that's essentially what the fiscal cliff is, but it's just too much of these solutions that the fiscal cliff presents, how am i going to word that? it's too much austerity and it is too much tax increases at least, for the budget, or the for the economy to manage. so my question is, that was very wordy, how much is too much, how much is too late
